Very good. I substituted sunflower seeds for the pine nuts, which seemed to work just as well.

This was good. My hubby turned up his nose when I told him there were craisins in it. He doesn't like dried fruit at all. But he really enjoyed the salad!

I made this salad last week and loved it.I love spicy/fruity combination but I would add more craisins next time too. It's a keeper!
